Popped in for a visit after seeing it was highly rated. Much smaller than I anticipated. A few tap lines but didnít see anything on cask when I was there. Took a seat at the bar and ordered a Centennial IPA. Service was fine but nothing stellar, no conversation or anything like that. Nice little menu. Grabbed a pulled pork sandwich that was pretty good but came with nothing other than a bite sized portion of slaw. Decent atmosphere. Seemed like a little bit of a dodgy area but it was all good. Undecided if I would make this a regular spot or not.
Ok, first, a minor issue - can we please stop with the PBR tap on otherwise stellar tap lists? Itís a stupid cliche, its a terrible beer, and itís taking up space that could be better served with something good. I mean, I know it used to have this retro-ironic cool vibe, but now itís just a tired, played out joke. Now, that out of the way, this place is cool. We went at lunch and pretty much kept to sandwiches, but they were awesome and the menu looked interesting. Service was attentive, and the selection (aside from the aforementioned issue) was a well chosen mix of local and national brands. I love that the date is on the beer menu so you know it is up to date.

Visited on a Thursday evening. 14 beers on tap and 2 beers on cask when I visited. A very nice selection of beers that includes local Charlotte beers, regional, and national craft beers. Cool beer bar, with a great selection that Iíll be visiting more in the future.
A great pub in NODA ( a great neighborhood in Charlotte) with a mix of old turn of the century look with medieval tables (made of recycled old barn doors, 14 taps and 3 cask of goodness, and a limited but good menu with burgers,, sausages, prize winning Reuben all very good, A nice place for a beer.
Located on North Davidson which seems to be Charlotteís artsy district. They have a small lot in the back but thereís a lot of street parking spots as well. The interior had a rustic feel as though we were in a farmhouse somewhere. They had 14 taps and 3 on cask when we went. Instead of dedicated brewer taps,they had dedicated style taps which was interesting. Except for the PBR bath water, all the taps were craft, with a 1/3 local. The food needs some work. My baked beans tasted like they came out of a Beenie weenies can and the Mac in the Mac and cheese was chewy. Other than that it was a nice spot with really attentive service.
We enjoyed our visit here. The place was fairly empty, but it has a nice vibe about it, and a pretty good layout. The selection was pretty solid, and I thought it was interest the way they reserve taps for styles. The food was pretty solid too. I would have liked to see more local beers on tap, I think they only had one on my visit?
Couldnít give it the highest score for but I really liked it as a beer place for food. Itís a small intimate room rough wood hewn vibe. The sausage and beer bar food were really good for the price. The list of taps was about half local and the other half was really good US beers. I liked how it was organized with 4 seasonals and a single rotating representation of other styles, one per tap. Thatís a great idea. The bottle list was short and super conventional craft beer staples. I would definitely go back for food or drinking with friends who donít want to watch me study the beer list. :)
Great vibe, friendly locals and staff went out of their way to point out the better beers. They hold a "random Tuesday" on the first Tuesday of every month that features a bwer and his beers, or a themed beer night - we had just missed pepper beers, although they had a few tasty examples left. Decent pub style food. Definitely worth a stop, one of the better places in a really great neighborhood.
Small little bar in an artsy neighborhood called Noda. Went there on Easter and was the ony patron in there. Real cool bar with brick walls and nice wooden bar. Has close to 15 taps and 3 casks all craft brews, all of which were quality. Had a beer from Big Boss brewing and a panini which was quite good. Really cool place and worth a visit.
